Info: 100 Veg. Capsules, 450 mg each

Cascara Sagrada, also known as sacred bark (from the Rhamnus purshiana [Rhamnaceae] tree), was first introduced to Spanish explorers during the sixteenth century by North American Indians. It has traditionally been used as a laxative to treat constipation, but also has potential applications for Colon Disorders, Liver Problems, and Poor Digestion. It can produce a soft or formed stool and stimulate peristalsis (the colon muscles' squeezing action) within about eight hours.
